Generally speaking, it appears your risk of HIV transmission is very low. Without penetration, it is still possible to contract HIV from a woman's vaginal fluids, but only if there is some contact with an open wound on your penis or contact with the urethra or rectal membranes.

There is no certainty that you have contracted AIDS. AIDS and HIV are extremely difficult to contract. HIV is NOT automatically passed on in any case. Even if you were to have blood from an HIV infected person drip directly onto an open wound on your skin, transmission of HIV would not be for certain, though it would be extremely high (about 90% likely). Sexual intercourse is how HIV is passed on in about 60-70% of all cases, though the actual chance of getting HIV from someone infected by it through sexual intercourse is anywhere from 0.1% to about 1%. If condoms are used always and properly, the chance of transmission is about 1 in 1000 (0.1%). If they are used most of the time and properly, the chance is closer to 1/100 (1%). If condoms are not used at all, risk increases to 1 in 10/1 in 15 or about 10%. The reason people become infected is that they participate in high risk behaviours such as consistant unprotected sex with many people they do not know. Risk increases with number of partners, but the chances are still very relatively low. From the Centre for Communicable diseases, this is the info they give on transmission rates: Risk of HIV-1 Transmission by Type of Exposure Exposure. Transmission rate Blood Transfusion. Very high (>90%) Perinatal (mother to baby birth. From 10%-30% Sexual Intercourse. From 0.1% (1/1,000) to 1% (1/100) Injecting drugs. Generally less than 1% Health care (pricked by a needle. Less than 0.5% Household. Very Rare - can occur via fresh blood contact To Summarize, there is no way to know if HIV has been transmitted to you, and your chance of being infected is low at about 5-10%, at the highest. That being said, having unprotected sex with anyone whose sexual history you do not know completely (and you can never know anyone's completely) is a huge mistake. Go and get tested, though you will have to wait about 6 months before the results can be considered accurate, as HIV antibodies take a large amount of time to show up in the bloodstream. Stop worrying about it now, because that will not help you. The chances you have been infected are low, but still possible. Stop having sex without condoms, and get tell your doctor exactly what has happened so he can order tests for you now & over the next several months.

Dear user. Thanks for the question. HIV spread through Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums and blood from the HIV-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of the HIV-negative partner. HIV can not spread through saliva.

Hi, I would like to know that Other than hiv, immune system can also be weak by what?

Hi, I would like to know that Other than hiv, immune system can also be weak by what?
1. Stress-- People like to ignore it but stress has a major influence on your immune system. Chronic stress -- caused by stressful situations or events that last over a long period of time -- raises cortisol levels of the body which decreases the production of 'good' prostaglandins. 'Good' prostaglandins are localized hormone like cellular messengers that support immune function, dilate blood vessels, inhibit 'thick' blood and are anti-inflammatory. Chronic stress can make you more susceptible to colds and the flu, as well as more serious health problems like heart disease, diabetes and other diseases. 2. A poor diet Prolonged and excessive consumption of refined sugars and highly processed foods containing pesticides, chemical additives, and preservatives can weaken the immune system and make you vulnerable to developing chronic conditions. 3. Excessive alcohol-- Alcohol, like sugar, consumed in excess can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs. Damage to the immune system increases in proportion to the quantity of alcohol consumed 4. Lack of sleep-- Without adequate sleep, the immune system doesn't get a chance to rebuild, and it becomes weak. Poor sleep is associated with reduced number of T-cells, white blood cells that help the body fight disease. 5. Obesity-- Obesity can lead to a weakened immune system. It can affect the ability of white blood cells to multiply, produce antibodies, and prevent inflammation.

HIV infection has been documented in every country in the world. Over 40 million people around the globe are living with HIV/AIDS. It is the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS. The virus attacks the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to a variety of life-threatening infections and cancers. Reminder: It is not just about medications. Coping with HIV requires lifestyle changes. Making the right choices can aid in the success of living with these diseases. Although it’s important to receive medical treatment for HIV/AIDS, it’s also essential to take an active role in your own care. The following suggestions may help you stay healthy longer: Eat healthy foods. Emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. Healthy foods help keep you strong, give you more energy and support your immune system. Avoid certain foods. Foodborne illnesses can be especially severe in people who are infected with HIV. Avoid unpasteurized dairy products, raw eggs and raw seafood such as oysters, sushi or sashimi. Cook meat until it’s well done or until there’s no trace of pink color. Get immunizations. These may prevent infections such as pneumonia and the flu. Make sure the vaccines don’t contain live viruses, which can be dangerous for people with weakened immune systems. Take care with companion animals. Some animals may carry parasites that can cause infections in people who are HIV-positive. Cat feces can cause toxoplasmosis, while pet reptiles can carry salmonella. Proper rest and sleep so that you wake feeling rested and give your body at least 7 hours to repair and recuperate. Control risk factors such as smoking, being overweight and lack of exercise. Stop drinking alcohol. Alcohol speeds the progression of liver disease. Avoid medications that may cause liver damage. Review your medications with your doctor, including the over-the-counter medications you take. Your doctor may recommend avoiding certain medications. Reduce unnecessary stress factors to insure a more alert and effective immune system. Make healthy lifestyle choices each day. For example, choose a diet full of fruits and vegetables and whole foods. Drink water to flush all the toxins from your body. Develop healthy social networks with friends, family and support systems. Help prevent others from coming in contact with your blood. Cover any wounds you have and don’t share razors or toothbrushes. Don’t donate blood, body organs or semen, and advise health care workers that you have the virus.

Tuberculosis - Understanding The Precautionary Measures & Aftercare!

Tuberculosis - Understanding The Precautionary Measures & Aftercare!
Tuberculosis or TB is an airborne disease that mainly affects the lungs and has the potential to be fatal. People with an impaired immune system such as newborn babies, pregnant women or women who have just delivered a baby, diabetics, cancer patients and HIV positive people are at the highest risk of suffering from this disease. However, this disease can be prevented and treated.

Here are a few ways to protect yourself from this bacterial infection.



Keep your distance: TB is a communicable disease and hence can spread from one person to another. If someone around you suffers from this disease, try limiting your contact with them. In cases where this is not possible, wear protective gloves and a mask to keep yourself safe. Avoid crowded, unhygienic places and always wash your hands with a disinfectant after contact with a TB patient.
Boost your immunity: A strong immune system can fight off TB bacteria and keep you from getting infected. To build a strong immune system, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables along with the required amount so carbohydrates, proteins and fats every day. Along with this, consult your doctor and start taking multivitamins or antioxidants on a daily basis.
Maintain proper hygiene: Keeping your surroundings clean is crucial to the prevention of tuberculosis. Ensure that not only your home is kept clean, but the surrounding area is cleaned as well. Do not allow garbage to accumulate around your house. Make it a habit of washing your hands with disinfectant soap every time you come home and before eating anything.
Vaccinate your children: When getting your children vaccinated, ensure that your child also receives the BCG or Bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccine that can protect him or her against TB.
Ventilate the house: The bacteria that causes tuberculosis thrives in stagnant air and enclosed spaces. Hence, open your windows and let some fresh air in. Not only does this prevent the multiplication of bacteria and viruses in your house, but it also does not allow your home to have a musty odour.
Follow the complete course of treatment: If you have been diagnosed with TB, it is essential to complete the full course of antibiotics and not stop midway even if the symptoms have disappeared. Not adhering to the prescription gives the bacteria the ability to develop resistance to the drugs. When this resistant bacteria is exhaled it can infect more people with drug-resistant tuberculosis that is harder to cure.
Aftercare for a Tuberculosis patient:

The patient should never stop TB treatment until it is completed. Incomplete treatment will only create resistant TB which requires longer treatment. The patients should ensure a healthy diet, and in case of frequent coughing, he/she should wear a mask. The patents should never fast and take high protein diet. In case of any complication, visiting a TB expert immediately is highly recommended.
